TONASKET – With the very first strums on her bass guitar, Laura Love had people up on their feet dancing. Orville Johnson and Chris Leighten completed the Laura Love Trio.
More than 100 people danced, clapped, stomped and swayed to the tunes of this wonderful band for 2&#189; hours with only a short 15-minute break. The words to describe this wonderful evening came from the participants-“Great, Fantastic, Best show ever, Let’s do this again, Way to go CCC, What a Show”.
The smiles on the dancer’s faces told it all. At one point six dancers joined hands in friendship and love, and the circle quickly became a group of around 50, all coming together in the center,and finally snaking around the dance floor for the remainder of the song. What fun, what laughter, what happiness – we are so proud at the CCC of what we have created and that we have the ability to warm the hearts of so many.
The Laura Love Trio brought Tonasket and the surrounding areas out of the winter on that wonderful night. And they enjoyed playing for us, as much as we enjoyed the show.
We are also very happy to report that we had 100 percent board attendance at this great function.
Thanks to the Washington State Arts Commission grant that we received, the Community Cultural Center had one of our greatest shows ever-well attended and very appreciated by so many. Thanks also to NCBI broadcasting corp. in Omak for all of the wonderful advertising-posters, radio ads, and community calendar announcements.
